Abstract

Abstract: Nietzsche’s most insightful contribution to the naturalistic project in philosophical psychology is not methodological but substantive: he discovered an important truth about the dynamics of psychological states, which I here dub the tenacity of the intentional . According to the tenacity thesis, when an intentional state loses its object, a new object replaces the original; the state does not disappear entirely. This interpretation is supported by and helps to tie together the three essays of the Genealogy . The article concludes by contextualizing the tenacity thesis within Nietzsche’s doctrine of the will to power.
